--- Comment #1 from Dimitrios Apostolou <jimis at gmx.net> ---
I agree. I am running rsync with --perms, but I want --fake-super to store the
original permissions in the xattr, and not change the real mode of the
destination file.

What is more, I am trying to force the real mode of the file by adding --chmod,
in order to make it group readable, but this affects the mode stored in the
xattr! There is no way to separate the two modes, the one in the xattr and the
real-mode. They are always set to the same value AFAICT.

Opened related bug #14319:  -M--fake-super --chmod changes the permissions
stored in the xattr.
